5.5 million to build: 3800 back to the school. Will pay for itself in 1447 years. Of course if the price of electricty goes up - maybe they will make moer.

Please don't forget Flatlander, Flatlander II, and Anywhere that they are also using the building every day for classes, sports, activities, and art displays. The field house is a needed and well-used building. How many schools, public or private, have a building that can produce energy for itself and the others on campus?

Clearly they had the money to invest, so why not invest it in something that gives better returns than the stock market? The school is rich because they provide a desirable service to their clients. While this type of building is not yet feasible for the majority, it will make this school more attractive to clients who value the lifestyle. Really, who is it hurting anyway?
